This is how the Townsville Bulletin reported on Hall Mark's death on April 17 1953:

Hall Mark, one of the great racehorses of Australia, breathed his last at Bumside Stud, Ingham, on Thursday night. The old fellow had not been himself for the past few months.

On Thursday he became ill, and it was decided, rather than see him suffer, that he should be destroyed. Hall Mark was 22 vears of age. Hall Mark ranked highly among Australia's good horses.

He won £28,619 In stakes, his wins including the A.J.C. and V.R.C. Derbies, Melbourne Cup, Doncaster Handicap, good two-year old races and w.f.a. events.

His win in the 1933 Melbourne Cup was one of the gamest races in the history of the event. Hall Mark won the V.R.C Derby in magnificent fashion, but cracked his heel, which was bleeding profusely when he returned to scale.

The colt had been backed to win a fortune In the Cup, to be run three days later. When the field saddled up for the big race the foot was dressed and given a shot of morphine. Many still remember Hall Mark's great race. He threw out a challenge at the distance, and beat a rare field of stayers, which included Rogllla. Shadow King, Topical, Gaine Carrington and Nigger Minstrel. Hall Mark returned to scale, limping and bleeding, and with the crowd cheering the courageous effort of a great horse.

At the Sydney Easter sales of 1944 he came into the sale ring. Prices for yearlings were sky high and those looking for sires apparently thought the boom prices would also be seen there, and fewer than usual attended the sale. The late Mr. Frank Fraser, looking for a sire for Burnside, bid 400 guineas for the ' Heroic horse. Next bid was 450 guineas. which Mr Frsser lifted to 475 guineas and he secured him.

Mr. Fraser was considered to have secured a bargain for he promptly received offers of big advances on the price he paid. He stuck to his bargain, and Hall Mark came to North Queensland. Hall Mark must have proved a profitable invest ment for Burnside. for his services were keenly sought.

He was a quiet horse, and was a great favourite to horsey enthusiasts on the Herbert who will appreciate the decision of his owners not to let him suffer. It was a merciful decision, for which they are to be commended.
